Judge Dredd is the future lawman and dispenser of instant and brutal justice on the streets of Mega-City One, a sprawling urban nightmare rife with crime and vice. Emerald Isle's Judge Joyce makes a visit to Mega-City One on the trail of a couple of bank robbers. Out of his depth, the Irish Judge must join forces with Dredd in order to apprehend the criminals...

Innocents Abroad is a collection of stories from the pages of 2000AD. All have been penned by writer Garth Ennis. The first story, Innocent's Abroad, is actually the dullest in the collection. Not that it is bad, just that the other stories are a lot better. Take Babes in Arms, for example, where a group of women who have been conned by their husbands set out to kill them one by one.

Or there's the hilarious The Rough Guide to Suicide where an illegal manual on how to kill yourself is proving to be a huge hit amongst the residents of Mega-City One, much to the annoyance of the Justice Department. Or Blind Mate, which spoofs the ITV series Blind Date, complete with a replica of Cilla Black. The collection concludes with Twin Blocks, which pays homage to Twin Peaks - although it's a little too short and dry.

It also helps that Greg Staples illustrates all but one of the stories. His twisted style of drawing helps bring a wonderfully nightmarish feel to the collection.

In conclusion, this full colour collection is great value for money and is a great novel to dip in and out of. Another great collection for Dredd fans.
